Soch Lo! Do all relationships come with a past?

with 20 comments

You don’t have to agree to what follows. Frankly speaking, I’m no relationship guru and you are of course better placed to take a call on your relationships. The write-up below is my entry to the Indiblogger Soch Lo! contest. If you like it, click here and vote for me.

Ismein Sochna Kya Hai? The answer is a big YES.

First and foremost, Today is the Yesterday of Tomorrow.

Besides any relationship, to say the least, is a complicated entity wherein bliss is only an occasional visitor. Unless of course, you are the lucky lass or bloke to have it all sorted out. But then you could very well be living under a veil of ignorance. For ignorance, as the cliche goes, is bliss.

When Adam and Eve were whiling away time in the Garden of Eden, all he knew was her and all she knew was him. Both had their curiosity piqued at the forbidden apple. What ensued the historical bite is common knowledge. However there is more than that meets the eye.

I happened to chance upon a piece in the library next to the garden that provided what the media today terms breaking news!

Believe it or not, but Adam and Eve were ardent bloggers. And when Adam read Eve’s post on her ex not having allowed her to eat the fruit, he like a true gentleman in his noble spirit fulfilled Eve’s longtime desire. Only if he hadn’t harped on her past. Alas! You get the drift ?

A close buddy of mine married a stripper. I was shell shocked. He argues that she was a stripper before she met him and, that now she strips only before him. They make a happy couple. One fine day I wish to find my stripper, my soul mate too. I live in the present and don’t fret a bit about the future, forget the past.

One of last years soulful Bollywood chart-buster Ektara beautifully delves into the dynamics of a relationship.

The snippet –

Sun rahi hoon sudhbudh kho ke
Koi main kahani
Puri kahani hai kya kisi hai pata

essentially conveys that the protagonist in spite of not knowing the whole story, read past, is presently in a state of blissful trance.

Remember Matthew McConaughey in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past? I’d suggest you spare yourself the horror.

You see, I can go on and on but I’d rather not question your intellect.
If you take one step forward and then two steps back, you know in which direction you’re headed.

Relationships mean hard work. If you value them, you better respect them and work your ass off.
Do you remember the time when you were with somebody and had the chance to be together forever? Yet you let go off them for reasons that now seem inconsequential. No matter how much you try, time cannot be turned back. There is no time travel, at least at the time of writing this.

Past is gone. What’s pertinent is the present and it will as you know, fly by in a moment and not give you another chance to change it. So chuck the past and live in the now. It is good to know what you did last summer. However, more important is what you are doing this summer.

Every relationship comes with a past. Whether you choose to dwell in the past or live in the present is a choice, I leave upto you.

  5. The exegesis for the 2nd and 3rd chapters of Genesis is for adults and makes us nervous. Why? Because the sin Adam and Steve committed, according to the story, was anal sex–the mystery Saint Augustine almost solved 1600 years ago. (He thought the sin was normal penile/vaginal sex!)
